Four juveniles were injured Monday afternoon in a collision on Crown Road near Camas.

At approximately 2:24 p.m., deputies from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and personnel from the East County Fire & Rescue responded to the incident at the 2500 block of Southeast Crown Road.

According to a Sheriff’s Office bulletin, the incident occurred when a 1967 Toyota Land Cruiser, driven by a juvenile and occupied by two juvenile passengers, was traveling southbound on Southeast Crown Road. The Land Cruiser entered a curve at Southeast 283rd Avenue and Crown Road, crossing into the oncoming northbound lane, occupied by a 1999 Daewoo Sedan, driven by a juvenile.

The driver of the Land Cruiser over-corrected, causing it to roll and eject all occupants, who were not wearing seat belts. The Land Cruiser collided with the Daewoo Sedan, injuring the driver.

Life Flight transported one occupant to Southwest Washington Medical Center in Vancouver. The remaining three victims were transported by ambulance to SWMC. Two have been released and two are listed in stable condition.

The sheriff’s office declined to release the names of the individuals involved, citing the fact that they are juveniles.

The collision is currently under investigation by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Units.
